FTW Racing Components today announced its official company debut. Created to equip radio control car enthusiasts and serious racers with components exhibiting form and function that defies convention, FTW RC will produce bodies, wings, and associated parts for 1:10 and 1:8 scale radio control cars. Along with the company debut, FTW RC announced its initial lineup of 1:10 scale off-road buggy bodies, including fitments for the popular Team Associated B4.1, Schumacher Cougar SV, and Kyosho Ultima RB5 platforms.
“We are excited to launch a company that focuses our team’s over four decades of successful R&D and manufacturing experience in the plastics and composites industries on developing revolutionary products for our fellow racers,” said FTW RC co-founder John Riewe. “As racers ourselves, we understand that racers are constantly seeking an edge over the competition, and providing that edge requires products of unsurpassed quality and functionality. They should look good too. FTW’s initial lineup of bodies demonstrates our dedication to exceeding those standards.”
FTW RC will continue to expand beyond the initial product offering to include fitments for most 1:10 and 1:8 scale platforms. According to co-founder Joshua Riewe, “Prototype FTW bodies for several popular 1:8 scale buggy platforms are currently undergoing testing at national level races. The lessons we learn from in-race testing will be incorporated into the final products that will soon be available to the public.
